Berkley, MI (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
PM Environmental, Inc. (PM) is proud to welcome Challenge Detroit Fellow Ms. Anna Balzer to the PM team. Launching year two of its program, Challenge Detroit is an urban revitalization project bringing innovative leaders to the city to live, work, play, give and lead in the community.
Anna will be based in PM’s Detroit Regional office and will be a Research Consultant for the National Due Diligence Group. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado Boulder and will support the performance of Phase I Environmental Site Assessments and Environmental Risk Management Services.
“PM is pleased to support this unique philanthropic venture while bringing on a dynamic and highly motivated new employee,” said Mike Kulka, CEO of PM Environmental, Inc.
Challenge Detroit is a new model for attracting and retaining talent to reinvigorate a great American post-industrial city by intersecting living, working, playing, giving and leading with an opportunity for 30 individuals of various intellects and backgrounds to come together in an effort with area companies, non-profits and cultural institutions.
“As Challenge Detroit embarks on year two of our program, we know our Fellows will continue the positive momentum our inaugural Fellows have created in the city and region,” said Deirdre Greene Groves, Executive Director of Challenge Detroit. “We believe these innovative leaders will make a unique mark on Detroit and leave a lasting impact on the future of the region. Our goal is not only to keep these 33 here after the end of the year, but also for them to be ambassadors and advocates for all things Detroit, engaging a wider audience to consider our community as a place they, too, can live, work, play, give and lead.”
In addition to working at PM, Anna will join other Challenge Detroit Fellows to work with non-profits throughout the year addressing regional challenges and opportunities, including multi-modal transportation, homelessness, and community development.

Challenge Detroit engages in the community through team challenges, in partnership with area non-profits, designed to positively impact the city and region. Challenge Detroit has further been recognized as a model for attracting and retaining talent in Michigan, receiving a two-year grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation as part of its LiveWorkDetroit! iniatiative.
